Leaven: A pre-orientation immersion for incoming freshmen!
Monday, July 18th, 2016 at 1:30 through Thursday, July 21st, 2016 at noon.
Annually, Campus Ministry brings incoming freshmen to campus for four days and three nights before the school year officially begins. Freshmen who have interest in developing their spiritual lives while at UP are invited to join Campus Ministry staff, current student leaders, and other incoming freshmen to explore the Catholic character of UP. Additionally, they will learn about the Holy Cross mission of the University and the numerous opportunities to grow in faith and leadership during the next four years.
The Leaven experience gives each freshman a preview of life at the University of Portland. Students stay in a residence hall, enjoy a variety of activities, explore downtown Portland, engage in service, and pray together. It is a wonderful opportunity to discover the many ways to grow closer to God and team up with the rest of the UP community as we strive to support, nourish, and serve each other in the journey of growing more fully into the Body of Christ. If you are interested in partnering with Campus Ministry to anchor your life at the University in the presence of God, consider attending Leaven this summer.
Applications due July 8. Space is limited.
